Misc. Comments

  • According to Rosenblum, Performance practices in classic piano music: their principles and applications, Dussek published his Military Concerto in 1798. In issue 43 of "Journal typographique et bibliographique" (1799?) it is mentioned as newly appeared from Pleyel.

Performance in 1798 season (6 times) by the composer noted in Gerald Abraham, The Age of Beethoven: 1790-1830, page 215.
